Escape is a 1930 British crime film directed by Basil Dean and starring Gerald du Maurier, Edna Best and Gordon Harker.[1] It was based on the 1926 play of the same title by John Galsworthy, which was adapted again as a film in 1948.[2]


A man escapes from Dartmoor Prison and is hunted across the moors by policemen to whom it is an unpleasant reminder of their experiences during the First World War.[3]



It was the first film released by Associated Talking Pictures, a British company with ties to the Hollywood studio RKO, which later relocated and became Ealing Studios. The film was made at Beaconsfield Studios which had been recently equipped for making sound films. The film's sets were designed by Clifford Pember.[5]
